ive seen the threads about android managing memory etc and you dont need to kill apps and stuff, but it definitely makes a difference for me. sometimes my hero goes quite unresponsive and so i open advanced task killer, kill some apps, and then its back to normal. the thing is the apps i have to stop are ones that i barely use.. but dont want to remove. why are they running? are they trying to update or get latest feeds if its a news app? is there any way i can stop them from running at all untill i actually want to run them?
